Merci beaucoup to both DAN and Graciegirl for the votes and to all those adding more auto-matic extras to the tune tabulator.   Last week we were inundated with trash to the point where Al had to cart some of his land-fill into Canada.  This week we're ready to open a used car lot.  And as they're mostly classics...we'll all soon be rich.

Is 22 years old classic or last-legs?

But this is a quality kiwi ride.

I think they have to be 25 years or older Bonnie.  Mind you...at this point...cars from 1993 don't really look all 'that' impressive to me.  Just old.  Most of today's cars all look the same to me.  And boring.  Where's the artistry?  Where's the pride?  Consumers today have little or NO taste.  Not in hair styles, not in running shoes, not in those poorly fitting suits men are now wearing, not in top 30 music, and certainly not in cars...["Oh...and I'll take my vehicle in grey."  [rolleyes] ]

Baaaaa.  Baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.  Baaa.

I'm not sure how I forgot about Queen's I'm in Love With My Car.

Fun Fact - Despite the fact that Brian May and Roger Taylor each sang lead on several songs on Queen's 1970s albums, this is the only song they performed live which Freddie Mercury doesn't sing lead.   Roger Taylor always sang this one in concert.   This was not the case for Roger's Modern Times Rock and Roll or Brian's '39, both of which were sung by Freddie in concert.

THIS is a pain in the arse to host.  You guys are puttin' me to sleep.  If it wasn't for KDS and ol' Freddie I'd be tits up on the pavement. [in Wawa Ontario...see CROWBAR live at Massey Hall.]



"You had Lighthouse on the Stereo"?



Those guys in the Crowbar pic were only 33% of Crowbar.  Kelly?  Ya.  Rolly?  Ya.  But where's Sonny?  Joey?  Rheal? and the Ghetto?  I see Sonny and the Ghetto's signature...but they're NOT in the pic.  Fake representation of what really happened.  [I was there.]  Went via subway.  It was before I ever bought my first car.

See?  Back on topic.  My First Car?  A '63 Austin Cambridge.  It was a piece of poorly wired crap.

Try to stay awake, Lee. It's only Thursday. [smile]

Here's a nice song from Grandaddy called "El Caminos in the West". I've always assumed it refers to the Chevy El Camino, which was a car in the front and a pickup truck in the back. Like this one from 1968:

1970 El Camino SS c.jpg 

But the lyrics are artistic (obscure):

Since this week is car themed, let's revisit Brian Wilson's first proper solo release, which I think could have been a hit had it been given a better.....vehicle than Police Academy 4



Here's a PSA from Black Sabbath, fronted by Ian Gillan on why not to drive when trashed

"Let's Go to Heaven..." is one of those lessor Brian songs, like "Love Ya" that seems so slight on first listen, but once you played it, you're still humming the hooks next week, even though you might not want to.

a little better to me, was "In My Car" with Carl & Brian. 

and of course, 'Run, James Run'.

thanks for all the Jan & Dean stuff, Al & Dan.!

"Go Lil' Camaro Go" isn't one of their best efforts, but it does have the lyrics "Girls cars sun fun, Good times for everyone" and "Papa oom mow mow". A 1967 Chevrolet Camaro:

One more: The "Super Stock Dodge", also known as the "413", in "Shut Down" would be the ugly 1962 Super Stock Dodge Dart with a really big engine. For example:

[Devening-300x199] 

It turns out that "Shut Down" has been the subject of much discussion in certain circles. People have even staged competitions in which it's been shown that the Dodge would beat the Sting Ray, not the other way around. Dodge fans have even "corrected" the lyrics:

http://www.1962to1965mopar.ornocar.com/shtdwn.html

Speaking of the lyrics, I've always thought the Dodge was "flyin' out in low", while the Internet says it's "windin' (winding) out in low", as in Ronnie & the Daytonas' "turn it on, wind it up, blow it out".

Here are Satan's Pilgrims (surf band formed in Portland, Oregon, in 1992, not 1962) with "Super Stock":
